“Rat Queen” is the brainchild of Jenny K. Hager, Creator #423. And if you’ve visited the Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville during One Spark, then you’re sure to recognize this large-scale rodent installation. Hager’s sculptural series is inspired by the twelve Chinese Zodiac animals – this according to the sign posted next to “Rat Queen” in MOCA’s lobby.

“This sculpture is inspired by a dream where rats are hanging by their teeth from the bottom seam of my gown. If selected for One Spark, the plan is to create the remaining animals in Chinese Zodiac and use them in a parade/performance in Jacksonville (possibly traveling to other locations).”

Hager’s Twitter handle is #ratqueenhager
